*Tiffany Haddish says she has lost 20 pounds since she started dating rapper Common.

“I’ve lost 20 pounds since I’ve been in this relationship,” she shared on the latest episode of Steve-O’s podcast, Steve-O’s Wild Ride. “I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it.”

Haddish admits she’s “way happier” being in a relationship with the hip-hop star.

“It’s like knowing I got somebody that cares about me, that really has my back,” she said. “It seems like he does, anyways. And I love it. I love him.”

She also teased that Common is her “twin” now that she has shaved off all of her hair.  

“I’ve been talking about cutting my hair for years … he said it was beautiful,” she shared. “He’s like, ‘Wow, you did it man. You’ve got a lot of courage. You look so beautiful. I love it.’ And I’m like, ‘Ahh, put your head on my head.’ “

Haddish and Common met on the set of the 2019 film “The Kitchen,” but it “wasn’t anything sexual or anything like that because my eyes were set on something else,” she said. 

However, the pair made a strong connection after going on a virtual Bumble date. 

“And then he got tested for everything, I got tested for everything, and yeah, we’ve been f—ing.”

Months after filming on the project wrapped, Hudson said this of Franklin: “I still feel like she’s in me, I really do. I just hope to meet her requests. You think you respect Aretha, but once you see the film and you learn her story, you can’t help but to have a newfound respect for her.”

She also had this to say about her personal connection with the Queen of Soul, “I still have the text chains, so every now and then I look back at them. The last time I spoke to her was Aug. 8, [2018,] and I can honestly say she sang until her last breath.”

In related news, filming on National Geographic’s Genius: Aretha starring Cynthia Enrivo has been halted after a background actor tested positive for COVID-19. The program is slated to debut in early 2021. 

When asked about the competing projects in an interview earlier this month, Hudson dropped some subtle shade, saying  “I know that Aretha was adamant that [her life] be a film. If it’s not a film, it’s nothing. I’m just honored that she picked me to play her.”

Wayne Brady Demands Social Media Platforms Do Better at Protecting Underage Girls [VIDEO]

*Wayne Brady is calling out social media networks to take more responsibility in protecting minors. 

Brady appeared on “The Talk”, and expressed his concern about platforms like Facebook and Instagram making it easy for perverted men to send inappropriate private messages to underage users. 

Brady recalled the experience of his 17-year-old daughter Maile, and how he and his ex-wife Mandie have been monitoring her social media accounts, ET reports.

“Mandie monitors Maile’s Instagram and social media because even when she’s near-grown—’cause she’ll be 18 in February, you are still a child, so we have to monitor that,” he said. “And these grown men see her dancing and whatnot, and they just slide in.”

Brady said Mandie once pretended to be their daughter and interacted with an older man.

“Mandie got on the line with one of them and was, you know, texting back and forth and he was talking slick, until he realized that it was her,” Brady said. “And then she’s like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ And he’s like, ‘I just broke up with my girlfriend, and I just saw her.’ That doesn’t mean anything. You tell that to your cellmate when we put you in jail. You can talk all about your post-breakup relationship then.”

Brady then called for social media companies to do better at implementing tools for reporting and removing child sex predators.

“You can try to block a person’s account and report them for hate speech… you can report them for trying to be someone else, but in order to really get to them to say, hey, this person is saying something damning or showing images to a young woman or even to a woman who gets a salacious pic, all of the tap dancing you need to do to get that person reported shouldn’t happen,” Brady said. “If this is what social media is, make the tools available to deal with these reprehensible people.”

*T.I. just can’t escape accusations that he’s a snitch. 

The rapper previously clapped back at critics of his appearance in an old Crime Stoppers commercial. In the clip, he says, “People call me Tip, but this is about another tip that can help our mothers, our sisters, our brothers and our fathers help get the perpetrators who commit crimes against them on the street.” He then provides a tip hotline and ensures callers identity will remain anonymous.

Funkmaster Flex Tip relived the moment when he mentioned the clip on Monday.

In an Instagram post, Flex used the  infamous Crime Stoppers video to insist the T.I. is a snitch. Check out his post below.

“Hahahah! Rappers that cooperate / testify for the police talk the loudest in social media!” he wrote on social media, Yahoo reports. “Why do informants always wanna have a voice after they cooperate? @ A rapper u think is an informant?”

Flex even referred to him as “McGruff the Crime Dog” for the Atlanta Crime Stoppers commercial. 

T.I. has yet to respond to Flex but he addressed the commercial while on Instagram Live over the summer, saying he has never offered information to law enforcement.

“Aye, and I’ma address this sh*t,” T.I began, while referencing his 2007 gun charge, for which he faced 20 years but served one year and a day. “I’ma address this sh*t too. All y’all n*ggas on there talkin’ ’bout a Crime Stoppers commercial and all that. Look, man. If I can get from up under 20 years for doing a drop, n*gga, you can’t convince no n*gga to snitch. If he was gon’ snitch, he was gon’ do that sh*t when he woke up, whether he watched the commercial or not.”
